A scheduling technique suitable for pre-assignment in satellite switched time division multiple access (SS-TDMA) systems is presented. As many uninterrupted bursts as are feasible are transmitted per configuration of the switch matrix. For small switch matrices (up to 6 × 6) this technique usually requires fewer reconfigurations than previous methods.
